Le Villi. Gianni Schicchi

The first opera by Giacomo Puccini - Le Villi - is a dance-laden tale of broken spirit and broken hearts. Anna and Roberto were bonded by their pending marriage - until Roberto is ravished by a siren. Anna dies in sorrow. Revenge devised by the spirits of abandoned women – the villi – is ruthless…

This production is the first staging of Le Villi in Riga, whereas, Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, superbly directed by Viesturs Kairišs, has already been hailed by Riga audiences and critics alike. Initially conceived from The Divine Comedy by Dante, it reveals human greed and avarice with an ironic touch. Against the background of family dissension and intrigue is a plot of deception with inheritance of the family fortune the goal. A pair of lovebirds stumbles into their sweet share of happiness.
